Tag_BLX in association with HalfArsed Inc. would like to introduce the
British Ridgback Protected Patrol vehicle
for Arma2 Combined Operations.

Posted Image

What is it?
The Ridgback PPV (Protected Patrol Vehicle) is a British modification of the American Cougar 4x4 MRAP.
It is fitted with a extensive armour package and electronics, including installation of the Enforcer remote weapon station.

Updated to v1.1

What You Get
v1.1
Added woodland version
Model tweaks, extra LOD's etc.
Added thermals
Improved handling both off and on road
(Optional) support for Blakes_Mirrors_EE addon gives reversing camera simulation
(Experimental) custom damage handling to make it more resistant to mines, IED's, low level rpg's (and zombies:))
Support for hiddenselections if you fancy a stab at re-texturing.
Texture templates are included in the download (just don't laugh at my UVmaps!)

v1.00 Desert variant


Requires
CBA, BAF/BAF Lite, blx_weapons.pbo (the last one is included in the download).

Nice work!

:thumb:

btw.. another display name would be nice.. Ridgback (Desert) instead of Ridgback_D.

Your 7zip-file has not the correct folder structure... @blx_ridgback\addons\blx_ridgeback.pbo would be nice. So you can unpack it directly in ArmA2 folder... now you have to add the addons folder.

I just did a quick test, and it's a great addition for BAF, I like it.

Thank you for your work :)

Excellent stuff. Very nice vehicle - I feel quite safe inside this! The textures look fine - I don't think there is any need to fiddle with them.

Thanks for the replies, gents. Feel free to point out any major flaws - they're bound to surface eventually.:)

Extra thanks to Sickboy for adding it to six updater (which I've yet to figure out how to use!) and Miller for the mirror.

btw.. another display name would be nice.. Ridgback (Desert) instead of Ridgback_D.

Your 7zip-file has not the correct folder structure... @blx_ridgback\addons\blx_ridgeback.pbo would be nice. So you can unpack it directly in ArmA2 folder... now you have to add the addons folder.


Feedback appreciated - I seem to make a habit of annoying people with my display names ....
